cover

Leon and Junior Daggett are dimwitted petty criminals who are robbing gas stations and liquor stores waiting for the big score to come along. Sociopath Roy Wade loves to kill people with his bare hands; thus he is the leader of this motley crew. When Junior is assigned his first big job of robbing a liquor store in upstate California, the two owners bloody him up forcing him to up escape with nothing to show for his efforts.

Bleeding heavily and needing medical attention the trio drive until they reach the secluded home of Vince and Maria. They force Maria at gunpoint to take care of Junior while Vince, trying to connect with them so they wonít kill him or his wife, tells them he is a retired bank robber. They force him to rob a bank by holding Maria hostage but Vince is smart and has many more years of experience so he intends to outwit these criminals because he knows that if does what they ask, they will kill him and his wife after the heist.

Vince is a suave urbane man in his seventies who canít get help from the police because he broke parole and if caught will spend the rest of his days behind bars. The way he plays these idiots is a virtuoso performance and readers will think of Carry Grant when they picture him. There is plenty of action and the pace is so fast readers will feel like they are on the space shuttle. Steve Brewer has written a funny and entertaining crime caper in which it takes a thief to catch a thief or three.

BOOK REVIEW: PIECE OF MY HEART
BY PETER ROBINSON

cover

Right off the bat the reader is faced with a big problem to figure out. It involves the cases of two murders that took place years apart. There is a murder of a young woman at a music festival in 1969. The other is a murder of a young man in a Yorkshire vacation home in 2005. What, if anything do these murders have in common?

The cases involve two detectives who are pursuing murders that took place 35 years apart and what they do to find clues in the mysterious deaths.

In the current day investigation, Detective Banks is puzzled by the lack of information on the victim. A local barmaid knew his name and that he was a music journalist but this was not much help for Banks. He needed more concrete information to be able to find out more about his past.

In the case that took place in September 1969, Detective Chadwick became involved. This was when the "hippie movement" was very popular. Detective Chadwick really doesn't understand the "hippie movement" but when a beautiful young girl is found stabbed and stuffed into a sleeping bag after a music festival he does get involved. He now has to learn about hippies. He has a daughter who is very much involved in this type of music, etc.

Are these two detectives able to solve their cases?

The author does an excellent job of going back and forth in time between the two cases. The reader will be engrossed as the author takes them on this journey on the way to try and solve these cases. The book has a complex plot. There are two separate mysteries but the author does a wonderful job of blending everything together. Peter Robinson is one of the best mystery suspense authors around and the reader can be sure they will not be bored with his latest work. This book is highly recommended.
